Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
IN HOC SIGNO VINCES
Raise high the holy cross
And show them Who is boss:
Fight the merchants of death
With every breath
And never count the cost.
From the archive:
Why do liberals like to besmirch
Institutions confirmed by research
As conducive to wealth,
Happiness, and health –
Such as marriage, the family, and church?
Last week’s limerick:
“If you don’t want your votes cast in vain,
Then wash Newt, Rick, and Ron down the drain;
Accept candidate Romney
As the mandated nominee:
Be consoled with a clone of McCain!”
[I]t is imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres. The seriousness of these threats needs to be clearly appreciated at every level of ecclesial life. Of particular concern are certain attempts being made to limit that most cherished of American freedoms, the freedom of religion. – Benedict XVI
In August 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services issued an interim final rule that will require most health insurance plans to cover preventive services for women including recommended contraceptive services without charging a co-pay, co-insurance or a deductible. . . . Today the department is announcing that the final rule on preventive health services will ensure that women with health insurance coverage will have access to the full range of the Institute of Medicine’s recommended preventive services, including all FDA-approved forms of contraception. – Kathleen Sebelius
This is going to be a long year.
There was a time in the history of the homosexual movement when their demand was for “tolerance.” That time has passed. Now, homosexual activists have completely reversed themselves and routinely demand an aggressive intolerance — for any viewpoints that disagree with theirs, that is. And what’s shocking is that, in many cases, large organizations are bowing to such demands. – Peter Sprigg
Tolerance for Bigots?

The Truth Will Set You Free!
How blessed we are to have lived during the reigns of two of the greatest popes ever!
We know about the scandal that first broke eight years ago. I won’t rehash the disgusting particulars. Who has been one of very few Cardinals that has done or said anything to forcefully and effectively address this? Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger — Pope Benedict the Great. Ask Marcel Macial. Recall the Good Friday sermon by Cardinal Ratzinger in the reign of his predecessor. Remember his speech before the last conclave. And think of the constant upholding of Tradition and faith in both positions. He has taught, maintained and held the truth that makes us holy. It isn’t the orthodox Bishops and pastors that are likely to abuse children, to abuse the Holy Mass, to abuse the faithful by denying them truth. Yet we see whom the media seeks to destroy, and we should ask ourselves, “Why?” – St. Louis Catholic
This AP story is typical of the genre. Bias is evident throughout. Note the repeated use of the words “stall” and “languish” to describe a pace typical of any bureaucracy. Worse, though, is the insinuation that the Vatican is somehow responsible for the disciplining of a diocesan priest, when in fact every bishop is sovereign in his own see. If the bishop knew that this priest was a threat to children and did not take steps to restrict him from contact with them, then it is the bishop’s — and the priest’s — fault, not Ratzinger’s or anyone else’s.
When will we see an AP article on the deliberate infiltration of the Church by homosexuals determined to destroy it from within?
